Forest, Va. -- Following his one-hit shutout Saturday afternoon, University of Lynchburg junior Hunter Campbell (Lynchburg, Va.) was named the Old Dominion Athletic Conference's baseball pitcher of the week, the ODAC office announced Monday afternoon.
Campbell dominated league-rival Eastern Mennonite in a 3-0 victory, facing just three batters over the minimum. It took him fewer than 100 pitches to do so.
Royals leadoff hitter James Jones started the game with a single against Campbell, but it was the only hit the right-hander allowed in the ballgame. He retired the final 10 EMU hitters after a sixth-inning error allowed a man to reach. He struck out two.
Campbell's first collegiate victory was the first complete-game shutout for Lynchburg since David Goulding's effort against Bridgewater, March 5, 2016.
Campbell is the Hornets' second ODAC pitcher of the week in 2019, following after freshman right-hander Brandon Pond (Chesterfield, Va.), who won the honor February 18.
Lynchburg is currently 2-2 in ODAC play and 7-10 overall. The Hornets square off with league rivals Hampden-Sydney and Ferrum this coming week along with a non-conference contest against Tufts.
